BLACK HISTORY MONTH IN GÖTTINGEN
A photography projekct
Since its first celebration in February 1969 in America, the Black History Month has extended itself all around the Western world as a month devoted to remembering, representing and reflecting about the different lives, cultures and political struggles from black people. Afro-Germans started celebrating it in Berlin with the Initiative of Black People in Germany (ISD) in 1990, the year of German reunification, which Afro-German poet and activist May Ayim described as a celebration "without immigrants, refugees, Jewish or black people."
We international students at khg want to launch a Black History Month in Göttingen in February 2019. In an opening breakfast on Nov. 10th we invite you to participate in a discussion about the scope, critics and importance of this project. If you are interested in participating in a photography project of black lives and cultures in Göttingen, come to the breakfast and start the Black History Month Project with us!
